QuoteI see a lot of fans comparing them to The Jesus Lizard
Quote from: kngen on September 29, 2020, 01:07:14 PMSham, I'll give you. But a bit rough on The Ruts. Look past Babylon's Burning and Staring at the Rude Boys (both of which I love, it has to be said), and there's some real craft and ingenuity in their song-writing, and they married that Westway punk-reggae hybrid sound more effectively and with a bit more bite than The Clash, IMO. Plus they were second only to The Damned in influencing the nascent DC hardcore scene (carrying on as far as Fugazi, I'd argue).Idles, though - fucking hell. The bum-tit ineptitude of a 3rd-rate UK '82 band combined with sneery Blur-at-their-most-condescending lyrics. Well done, chaps. *Slow clap* What insane (and presumably deaf) bastard compared them to The Jesus Lizard?
QuoteThe promotional campaign for 2018's Joy As An Act Of Resistance centred around the damage that alcohol had done to the band and its members. This was followed by the launch of IDLES' own craft lager.

Quote from: Dirty Boy on September 29, 2020, 01:15:04 PMI always get them confused with SLAVES who, if anything are even worse. It's like Danny Dyer and his brother formed a band. Anything Lamaq likes is probably best ignored and not worth getting upset about...They're doing fucking what?!!!I've never listened to Parquet Courts, are they one of the good ones then?
Quote from: Brundle-Fly on September 29, 2020, 01:06:44 PMThe ongoing US Punk Vs UK Punk wars put Blur Vs Oasis war to shame. Talking of which, I know Shame ( seen them live. V.good.) but not the others. Will have a listen. . Do you like The Moonlandingz?
Quote from: jobotic on September 29, 2020, 02:18:49 PMBroadcast had imagination and wit and depth. They don't belong in this thread.
Quote from: AllisonSays on September 29, 2020, 02:11:34 PMThe IDLES single is witless shit, and I agree that the lyrics are horrible; they've confused hating the system with hating the people enmeshed in the system (which to be fair is also a tendency in lots of first-generation punk and post-punk, but I don't like it there either). Sleaford Mods could easily be accused of doing the same thing - and I have the impression that they're both also much posher than they let on. But they get away with it for me because they've consistently rejected any kind of 'spokesperson for the underclass' role, and because there's something a wee bit stranger and more interesting in both the lyrics and the vocals. Parquet Courts are fucking terrible too, could never get into any of the kind of Pavement-esque wave of new American bands. Just listen to Pavement eh, they're much better.

Quote from: The Mollusk on September 29, 2020, 02:42:18 PMDavid Yow is a guest on one of the tracks on the new album, which I'm presuming is IDLES' way of further establishing their cred and simultaneously compensating for their own lack of ingenuity. I've also seen comments on YouTube and Last.fm favourably comparing the two bands.
Quote from: phantom_power on September 29, 2020, 02:35:35 PMI don't know about the merits of the various bands but Parquet Courts sound fuck-all like Pavement, apart from being American
Quote from: CrabwalkDavid Yow must've been tricked.
Quote from: thugler on September 29, 2020, 05:37:18 PMI just find them so intensely boring and plodding. Their schtick is very limited and once you've heard one song you've heard them all. Now, there's tons of bands like that I love, but they're not doing anything interesting or original. It's not like I hate them, it's just there's nothing there. It seems like so many young bands have so many new ideas and draw on so much old music, and then you get this tired bad imitation. All mid tempo blandness with that man shouting his funny slogans and topical references. The lyrics are like tedious Banksy graffiti people continually insist is 'genius insight' rather than something with the depth of a fart, maybe that's giving them too much credit. It makes me feel old. Goddamn, I love Jesus Lizard and that's embarrassing if he guests on their record.
